"A deep, muscular wine endowed with superb richness, inner perfume and structure. From cask this has always been an intense, inward Barolo and now that it is in bottle, those qualities seem even more prominent. Over time, the classic Cascina Francia bouquet of roses, tar, herbs and licorice comes forward, but only reluctantly. A massive wall of tannins prevents the fruit from emerging, but every now and then the wine shows hints of its ultimate potential."

2008 Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric del Fiasc

"The 2008 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is incredibly fine in this vintage, probably because of the addition of a new Riserva from this vineyard into the lineup. Dark red fruit, flowers, mint and spices flow from this graceful, refined Barolo. It will be interesting to see where the 2008 goes from here. I can’t say the 2008 is a very typical Bric del Fiasc because it is more finesse than power, but it is a very beautiful wine just the same."

2010 Vietti Barolo Lazzarito

"Good full red. Musky strawberry, pungent raspberry, game and minerals on the enticing nose. Elegant, silky and juicy, with terrific cut and lift to the red berry and blood orange flavors. Showcases the energy of the 2010 vintage at its best; in fact, this makes the 2009 Lazzarito seem almost raisiny by comparison. The juicy, slowly mounting finish features suave tannins and a lingering suggestion of orange. This beauty is sexy already but has the spine to evolve positively in bottle for 15 years." -Stephen Tanzer

2009 Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia

"The 2009 Barolo Cascina Francia is a stunning wine. Roberto did not make Monfortino in 2009, therefore that wine was declassified and added here. The results are truly spectacular. The wine shows the soft fullness that is characteristic of the vintage, backed by tight tannins that pull the wine together. Dark fruit, licorice, chopped herb, white truffle, tar and pressed rose form a united aromatic front."
